Author Spotlight: Eligah Boykin, author of “Tales Times Ten”

Eligah Boykin

Eligah Boykin, author of Tales Times Ten, was born in Mobile, Alabama, to Eligah and Mattye Boykin.

He grew up in a full, loving family. He wrote a novel and a three-act play by the time he was 15. He also worked in a factory meanwhile taking courses at a community college and hatched a plan to write a three-act play that would be turned into a movie.

Bouncing from being a cab driver to a teacher’s aide to a dishwasher, through the successive hard knocks of life, Boykin earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the College of Creative Studies and a master’s of fine arts degree in creative writing from Full Sail University.

Armed with more sophisticated knowledge, some of which validated his earlier assertions and conclusions about what it took to become a truly professional writer, and with other tools of the trade, he began to crank them out.
